Aligning Your Work with What Makes You Happy

After analyzing the results of interviews with 850,000 people, researchers Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton found the key difference between those who are happiest and most energized at work is whether their work aligns with what motivates them.

But knowing what most motivates us isn’t easy. It’s often not what our culture tends to emphasize, things like status or money or even using our strengths.

The authors’ research shows that if people understand better what their motivators really are, they can make some relatively moderate changes within their careers that will make them much more engaged and happier.

What You Will Learn

Join us as the New York Times bestselling authors of The Carrot Principle and All In unveil their exciting new work, and offer an extensively-tested method to identify anyone’s unique blend of core motivators and then help them align more of their work with what drives them. Attend and you’ll learn:

  • How to identify your core set of motivators (they are different for each person)
  • How to enhance your value and accomplish more in your career with simple but powerful job-sculpting strategies
  • How to avoid blind spots and potential conflicts

Whether listeners are managers who are trying to get their people to be more productive and engaged or individuals looking to reignite their passion in their current job, this program will help them align the work they do every day with what truly motivates them.

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
